Hi,

I used cleaner 5.02 to convert the movies to quicktime. Below is from the FAQ on the internet archive site.
This is based on the method I used. Some people are using quicktime pro to do this also. I haven't used that method.
You can also use an MPEG decoder card (I haven't tried that either)

You can Re-encode Mpeg2 movies to
quicktime for FinalCut Pro using Cleaner5.0.2 using the following
settings. There is no de-interlacing, so you don't lose anything. The files increase in size 10 fold, so make sure
you have enough HD space. This procedure gives you quicktime movies suitable for use with final cut.

Cleaner 5 -- if you don't have 5.0.2, you can download.0.2 from the terran.com site.
- output > quicktime, .mov
- tracks > process everything
- image > image size constrain to 720*480, display size normal, do not deinterlace, field dominance-SHIFT
DOWN
- encode > apple DV-ntsc codec, millions of colors, spatial quality 100%, frame rate, same as source
- Audio > we're still not sure about which is best. start with mono, 48kb, experiment.

Angelo,
I want to use Prelinger footage in a documentary. However, I can't get the film to download to my computer. I've tried it with IE and with Netscape. I'm working alone and not technically savvy enough to know how to check to see if I have a firewall in operation or to know how to change to a better ftp to see if that will help. Can you please suggest a way to download a film. After I achieve that, I'll try your way for getting the footage into FCP3
Thanks.
Robert

Thanks for the suggestion. However, I went to download.com and did not find a listing for Smart FTP on the FTP page. Could it have an additional name, such as MacSFTP (OSX)?
